This episode will be followed by a live web chat which will give participants an opportunity to communicate with our bariatric surgeon Nestor de la Cruz-Muñoz, M.D., chief of the Division of Laparoendoscopic and Bariatric Surgery and co-director of the Center of Excellence for Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery.
